Schalenblende is a lead-zinc ore that contains compact layers (once botryoidal) of Galena, Wurtzite, Sphalerite, Pyrite, and Marcasite. Identifying the minerals within a piece are very easy, yellow being Wurtzite, brown being Sphalerite, silver being Galena, and grey and gold being Pyrite and Marcasite. Galena is the most common mineral, resulting in pieces being extremely dense for their size. It’s estimated that Schalenblende formed around 135 million years ago, when a sulfide rich liquid rapidly crystallized at an unusually low temperature. This specific creation process was rare on Ancient Earth, thus making this stone relatively rare. Schalenblende was first discovered back in 1892 by J.D. Dana. He chose to name it after the German words “Schale” and “Blende”, which means “to cover” or “to hide”. This refers to the number of different minerals within Schalenblende that are hidden throughout it’s concentric layers. The mineral has only a few localities world wide, with many being Northern European countries. Belgium, Poland, and especially Germany have the most important deposits of Schalenblende. Other countries with smaller veins include Italy, the United States, Spain, France, and Canada.
Just by the dense weight of Schalenblende, one will immediately realize the grounding potentials this stone can offer. With additions of confidence, manifestation, and enhanced personal will, Schalenblende is the ultimate crystal for activating one’s lower three chakras. These open energy portals will aid us in our reconnection to Mother Earth, as well as helping conjure our thoughts and ideas into reality. This unique crystal assists you in crucial decision making that will alter the course of your life path. Schalenblende keeps one’s vision focused on themselves rather than on other peoples’ opinions. The strength you have within yourself will slowly begin to unlock and radiate throughout your body. One can use this energy to remind themselves of their true potential, all they have to do is just commit to it. You will “weather the storm” and become stronger because of it. Your potential knows no bounds, and is full of energy just waiting to be tapped into. Use this mineral as a manifestation tool in your life.
Set your desired intention into a piece of Schlablende and use it as a meditation tool during your sessions. Place it directly over your belly as it aids in the connection to your solar plexus chakra. One’s personal will is housed in this portal, which can make dreams become a reality. Close your eyes and envision your affirmation being physically set into the stone with every detail playing out in your head. Continue allowing your imagination to flow with positive scenarios and outcomes. This is a simple act of manifestation that can slowly channel into the physical realm. Doing this repeatedly throughout the days ahead will not only keep your mind focused on what's most important, but also your consciousness in line with your soul’s desires. This is the most important thing in the pursuit of happiness.
